Aspen Chapel Gallery teams up with Pitkin County Library for a new exhibition
Mixed media exhibition “There’s More to the Story,” will open at the Aspen Chapel Gallery on Wednesday, Oct. 4, with an artist reception from 4-7 p.m.
The show is in partnership with the Pitkin County Library: 10% of sales and 20% of sponsorships go to the library to continue to provide free art classes, crafting workshops, art resources, and other materials to the community.
“The Pitkin County Library is one of Aspen’s treasures. It appeals to all ages and has enhanced programs created by the fabulous staff,” said the curator, Sam Louras. “As curator for the upcoming Aspen Chapel Gallery’s show in partnership with the Pitkin County Library, I decided that ‘There’s More to The Story’ describes not only the mixed-media artwork, but the multifaceted mixed media that is above and beyond library books. Please join the artists and library representatives for the community opening at the Aspen Chapel Gallery.”
Current workshops include Sewing 101, Bookbinding, Beading Bonanza, 3D Printer Training, and creativity workshops for tweens and teens.
The library also hosts After School Wednesdays that provide science and art-based activities for school-aged children. For those who prefer to practice art at home, the Library Lab provides crafting and art checkout kits that are free with a library card.
Participating artists include Michael Bonds, Marsha Cook, Katalin Domoszlay, Susan Grove, Jayne Mosher, Leif Mosher, Mirjan Rosner, Jessica Salet, Dick Sundeen, Mellie Test, and Louras. This is the 245th consecutive exhibition since the gallery opened 38 years ago.
